    Same with many people here, Fab Filter.

    But, and I know some of these audiophiles will disagree with me, but if your orchestral mix is mixed well, you shouldn't have to do too much EQ, unless it's a heavily produced track. I listen to some tracks and people go way overboard and kill the quality of their samples.

    Yeah, for surgical, parametric, Fabfilter is the one to get with DMG Equilibrium as an alternative to consider.

    For subtle boosts and color, Pultec is my favorite for orchestral. There are a few good software Pultecs, but my favorite is the free PTEq-X by Ignite Amps; it has the closest sound and behavior to the Pultec I used.

    Make sure you have v1.1 which fixes any phase problems.

    Will be interesting to get some feedback on the new Logic 10.4 Classic EQ's.

    Pro-Q 2 is my workhorse and then the PSP E27 for subtle shaping and colour in all my projects!
